I'm happy to say that if I stay on track, I will have completed anywhere from 10-60 minutes of yoga on 27 out of 31 days in the month of January.
This got me thinking about The Happiness Project. I read it a few years ago (as most of us probably did) and I really admired Gretchen's goal-setting mentality. Giving yourself something to work toward is important. So I'm going to come up with a new goal each month and do my best to follow through. This is in addition to my overriding goal of "new recipe each Monday" (that thing I still think I'm going to do, remember?).
Also, some of the goals can carry over from month to month. There's no reason why I can't practice yoga every day in February too. Honestly, it makes me feel so good that I'd be doing myself a disservice if I quit now.
So. February's challenge will be to come up with a cleaning schedule, put it into practice and stick to it. This may take some doing. I'm generally an all or nothing type of person, and I'm having trouble with the logistics. When you're remodeling, you're continuously cleaning and it can lead to Saturdays being absolutely exhausting. By Sunday afternoon, I'm spent and don't even want to cook dinner, lest I dirty more dishes.
Also, I have some concerns: So wash linens is Saturday, but what if I'm out of town? Or if I write grocery shop for Saturday, what if I can't make it to the store until Sunday? Dust on a Wednesday? What if the only thing I want to do on Wednesday is drink moscato and watch reruns? Actually, I'm more likely to have my act together by Wednesday, so I think Monday and Tuesday will have to be the "light" days on this schedule.
Any advice on where to start? Do you use a cleaning schedule?
